I am Math Tutor Earlston. I am a native of Bermuda and received my public education there. Then I pursued post-secondary education in the United States. Math is one of my strongest subjects; however, I believe that whatever subject you study, your aim should be to do your best. One reason why I rate algebra highly is because of its strong logical content. With its combination of numbers and letters, it is important to note that without knowing it, algebra is a commonly used activity. For example, if baseball tickets cost $50.00 for adults and $25.00 for children, I could use algebra to determine the amount of money persons would need to take their entire family.
My tutoring method is to guide students in arriving at the answers for themselves. I try to make sure that students understand the rules and principles that they need to use to make the necessary calculations along the way; however, the students do the work. The saying is true: 'If you give a man a fish, he will eat for a day; however, if you teach a man to fish, he will eat for a lifetime". My goal is to walk students through the process and use a visual vehicle so that students can clearly see how to arrive at the answer. I look forward to showing students how easy math can be.
